The Sophisticated Paperboy

Well, guess what? That is what I was once called - "The Sophisticated Paperboy". It was actually during a painful growing up period of my life and it was also one of the most revealing and useful periods of my life, too. That is the reason "The Sophisticated Paperboy" will be the title of my first book, which I am working on at this very moment.

This blog will in some ways be a preview of who I am and what I am interested in which will be revealed later, hopefully in a grand style, in the book.

So, friends, hang in there with me.

God Is So Good! All The Time!

Here is Shambala, which has been my home in Accra, Ghana for nearly three years. As I have said in earlier blogs, I decided to start returning to the USA and came back to the USA in September, 2008. In my last blog I entreated you all to join me in prayers because I was hoping to sign a lease for my new apartment. Well, the Lord was willing and I signed the lease on October 1st and moved in a few days later. I want to share photos of the first time I actually saw my new apartment. Here is the front of the building.

The Front Entrance
I am entering the front entrance here.

I am so pleased that there are porches with rocking chairs on each floor.

The first floor porch overlooks this nice fountain.

There are community rooms on each floor. There is a library, computer room, barber shop/beauty salon, crafts room, exercise/weight room, community kitchen and two laundry rooms on each floor.

Those of you who are retirees like me, if you have not already done so, you will welcome downsizing to a nice small/medium sized apartment like this one as we coast into our really senior years. God is SOOOOOO Good!.
